This is a discussion on zoom MTTs within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hi all!
Can someone give me some advice how to play zoom tournaments?
i dnt usually play zoom MTTs but i have some tickets so i want
play in early position and tight in the late steal more, many players do not want to wait too tight and quick to fold, take advantage of this

1. dont bluff to much
2. don play to many early bad hands, some times 2.5bb raise with 89s from UTG can be good, but to many hands like this will put you on a wierd range + let you out-play yourself
3. steal from late but mind your self!!!!

Raise more in early position 3Bet more than a normal mtt..you should play more preflop.

re: Poker & zoom MTTs
I think in such turnirah need to play more hands than in regular tournaments, often try to pick up the blinds and defend their blinds more aggressively.

Play premium hands as you would normally. When it's just you and one other player after the flop, always bet if the other person checks. I've found that 90% of them fold. If you try to bluff at zoom, you will lose your shirt. Remember players choose which hands to play, so you are often facing a quality hand pre flop. That's just my opinion.
